Impact of psychomotor skill training on selected psychomotor abilities of male handball players


Author(s): D Suresh Kaliraj, STN Rajeswaran and T Mohan Kumar

Abstract: A modern trend that allows the selection system optimization is that of the introduction of tests that assess the coordination skills level development. In handball, player has to run, jump and throw the ball during shooting, and passing the ball both in position of stationary and moving. Psychomotor skills, in general terms, can be described as the continuous relationship between mental processes and human physical movements. Development of psychomotor behaviors of players combined with a good physical training can lead to optimal manifestations of the players' skills during the matches. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the psychomotor abilities of handball male players based on the two variables, hand-eye coordination and dynamic balance. The pre-post random group experimental design was formed with two groups, group I trained with psychomotor skills and group II trained with their traditional practices. The results of the study revealed that psychomotor skill training had significant improvement on hand-eye coordination (6.53 p<0.05, 19%) and dynamic balance (7.33 p<0.05, 15%) from their baseline performance with significant ‘f’ values. The study evaluated the selected psychomotor abilities of professional handball players. The increasing frequency of handball games is associated with persistent development of technical skills. Recommendations on infusing psychomotor abilities in handball training can be implemented by coaches to progress the game.
